Home Blyth  

Blyth was once a thriving  coal-exporting,  fishing port and, in WW2, a submarine base.  Times have changed and once the coal-fired power station closed it came  to  rely on the import of Bauxite for the local Aluminium Smelter. However the smelter at Lynemouth closed in 2012. Bauxite is still imported and transported by rail to Fort William in Scotland. In 2003 the quay was restored and  coal was for a time imported from Eastern Europe and the USA, to the converted  Battleship Wharf. Research and development of wind turbines is breathing new life to the port.
